Pullman Strike / Press

“People We Know, Pullman Strike's 2011 LP, has all the swing and twang of a respectable country record. Yet, it still has roots in the sweat-and-PBR of punk and hardcore, as evidenced by the caustic sneer on "Springtime" or the menacing drums and take-this-job-and-shove-it message of "Work." (Even David Allan Coe's "Take This Job and Shove It" was a Johnny Paycheck hit before Dead Kennedys got to it.) And while Pullman Strike isn't the only current Charlotte band making this connection — Scowl Brow is another — it seems the country-punk marriage just keeps getting stronger.”

“...it feels reductive to call Pullman Strike just an alt-country band. The sextet’s work today shows a steadily developing ensemble still finding ways to cultivate the middle ground between indie rock crunch and country creak.”

“Pullman Strike is a sextet bringing you a wonderful mash up of indie, stoner rock and Americana. Their latest album features heartfelt love songs alongside gut-wrenching melodies about loss and loneliness”

" All of these guys grew up on a huge dose of Tom Petty and old country but still had a love for the DIY ethic of punk and indie music. Their sound brings to mind Uncle Tupelo, Son Volt, early Lucero, Slobberbone mixed with the slacker aesthetic of Dinosaur Jr."

“...Switching from the upbeat mood of the night, Pullman Strike transitioned the evening’s atmosphere to a family affair. Starting off strong, slowing it down, and then picking it right back up, their sound kept me on my figurative toes with beautiful melodies pieced together with harmonies supporting meandering lyrics. Pullman Strike is great at what they do and I thoroughly enjoyed watching their set.”
